Storyline

Amanda Dartland accompanies her half-Apache husband Jonathan to a mining community where he will supervise the excavation of an almost mythical Apache treasure. His jealous rages and macho attitude cause her much misery, while the excavation project is threatened by prejudice and fear. Amanda tries to bridge the cultural gap, and Jonathan must do the same, or he will lose her. Mesmerizing brief performance by Celia Lovsky as Princess Saba. Written by Molly Malloy <mailcall@intersource.com>

On vacation, Jane Russell meets and falls for a local guy and wants to marry him. She finds she doesn't understand him fully but pursues to investigate him in order to make a success of their marriage. Enjoyable scenery, lovely gowns and Jane looks great in her short hair.
